HAPPY SUMMER VACATION!


YEE HAW! 

SUMMER VACATION IS FINALLY HERE!


Here are 10 awesome things coming up this summer...

1. Family trip to Lake Champlain


 We haven't been back to the Basin Harbor Club for years, since the kids were little. 
I love this place. It has a charming, old-fashioned vibe that is both relaxing and rejuvenating. 
And I get to see the kingfishers in the morning. Can't wait!


2. Writer's retreat with the Junior Mints to Woodstock, VT!


My second trip to Vermont for the summer!
The gals and I will be diligently working on our latest novel antiquing, noshing, exploring, and generally having an excellent time.
Oh yeah, we'll probably work, too.


3. I'M GOING TO SEE LOUISE PENNY 
AT THE NORWICH BOOKSTORE!  
AHHHHHHH!



I have been patiently waiting for the day when Louise Penny would tour New England.
And THE DAY IS FINALLY HERE!
She will be reading and signing books at the adorable Norwich Bookstore in July.
 And I think I was the first one to get tickets. Hee hee!
This is how I feel about that...

 

So, this will be my THIRD trip to Vermont for the summer. I am not complaining!


4. Family reunion in Jamestown, Rhode Island


My hubby grew up in Rhode Island, and we try to get back here every summer.
My favorite things to do? Cliff Walk, Sachuest Point, and getting a Del's lemonade by the beach.
It has chunks of lemon peel in it. YUM!

 

5. Finish THE LUMBERJACK AND MIMI SPARKLES

 
I finally figured out what story to finish over the summer. 
LUMBERJACK POWER ACTIVATE!


6. Kids are going to movie-making camp, art camp, overnight camp, and community service camp.



7. I'm doing the "get hot while it's hot" challenge with Sue.
Check out her blog and her inspirational story about losing weight and getting healthy!



8. Newport Kite Festival


The Kite Festival at Breton Point State Park in Newport, RI is a blast.
This park is right next to the ocean--gorgeous! 
And the sky is filled with kites of every shape, color and style.


9. Summer Cocktails!


My new favorite summer drink is the MOSCOW MULE.
I'll have more about this tasty cocktail later in the week.


10. Gardening in New England


Pumpkins are growing. I have squash, peppers, raspberries, tomatoes, fresh dill cropping up.
I've been using my fresh oregano and lemon balm every day.


I LOVE SUMMER!


What is everyone doing this summer? Anything fun? Let me know!
